Using runes isn’t a way on how you can generate fire or lightning with your bare hands or fingertips. Runic readings and castings are used to tap into your intuition and access your inner voice. Showcasing and sharing what you want to say and or to foresee what you truly desire. With that being said, there are a lot of rune layouts that can suit the answers you seek. Traditionally, rune layouts are done in odd numbers like 3,5,7,9, and an annual 24 layout is done during the beginning of the year or winter solstice.
If we take a step back in time, runes are usually thrown or “cast” onto a piece of fabric while looking up into the heavens with the selected runes you plan to read. This practice is not outdated, yet we prefer reading them through a pouch in our non-dominant hand and think about the questions we seek answers to. As you pull out these runes with your dominant hand you place them in a shape or layout of your choice.
A lot of people are wondering if there would be an official store or shop that sells authentic runes or rune stones. To answer this question, there are shops that sell these pre-made or you can make them on your own as you engrave them on stones, wood, or crystals. Infusing them with an extra layer of magical vibes is completely up to you. If you know what we mean.
Since there are only two ways on how you can cast these runes, let’s move on to how to read and lay them out for these inner voices to break free.
3 -Rune Layout
Three-Rune Layout is a basic cast for beginners that is perfect. Use the randomized methods outlined in this article to generate three runes for random selection from your rune pouch and then put them on the desk in front of you.
When drawing a rune on the wall, put a rune on the right, another in the middle, and the last on the left (so they should be in the order 3, 2, 1).
For the first rune, think of your overall situation or query.
This Rune is the second in the middle, signifying a challenge.
Rune 3 could mean one of two possible courses of action.
5 - Rune Layout
The purpose of the five rune layout is to place the five runes one at a time, in specific locations.
In the middle, form a cross with the other runes surrounding it. In order to accomplish this, arrange the runes as follows: Rune two should be on the left of the center (west), Rune three on either the top (north), Rune four on the bottom (south), and Rune five on the right (east). Alternatively, you can lay them down with their faces down and turn them over to read them, or flip them over to read them right away.
The layout intends to convey that three runes (2, 1, and 5) arranged in a horizontal manner symbolize your past, present, and future. The rune to the right of the central rune (3) denotes the possibility of gaining assistance in regards to your problem or issue, while the rune to the left of the central rune (4) indicates what aspects of the problem or iss
7 - Rune Layout
In the top left rune, you can see the question's previous influences. To the left of the two letters on the second row, the rune indicates how current issues are influencing the question. When viewing the top left rune from the third position, you will see future actions that pertain to the question.
When you look at the rune in the middle, you can see what should be done to get the best result. When asked to explain their feelings or emotions, those to the right of the center bottom rune have shown a considerable depth of understanding. This rune, positioned two spots to the right, displays any potential issues that could arise with regard to the query. And at the top right, you can see a rune predicting the future result that relates to the question.
9 - Rune Layout
Nine is a mystical number in Norse mythology, so it is suitable to have a nine-rune ritual. When casting for your spiritual path, use this cast if you want to try to determine where you are, where you're going, and what the next phases or opportunities could be.
Know about your spiritual yearnings when casting this casting method. Use one rune at a time. Go through your rune bag, pull out nine runes, and carry them for a moment or two. Once they are on your runecloth, scatter them around evenly.
According to prevailing opinion, runes that are situated in the middle correspond most to the current predicament, whereas those that are situated on the outer edges are of lesser importance. The order in which the runes are placed has an effect on how the influence of the runes relates to the garment. If the runes are in close proximity to each other, then they can work in synergy; however, if they are on opposite ends of the cloth, then the runes are mutually opposed.
Prioritize attention on the runes which have managed to land face up. Use the information you've written down to study the runes and learn more about them later. Finally, place all the upside-down cards in the same position. In my opinion, these latter runes symbolize influences from the outside or future and may yield additional potential outcomes.
Make sure that when you are interpreting these runes and what they mean or correspond to, make use of your good intuition. The beauty and magic of these runes are not dependent on your skills and capabilities in the art of witchcraft, moreover, they focus on what you deem necessary and what you truly want to express or tell yourself as you progress in the existence of everyday life.
